A £4m extension contract at Glossopdale School in Derbyshire was achieved by Contractor Henry Brothers. The contract award follows its completion of the £23m main school complex, which opened in 2018.
April is expected to be the start date of works on the new two-storey classroom block, which will provide a further 240 places at the school in Hadfield, near Glossopdale. The building design has been developed by DLA Architecture jointly with Derbyshire County Council and the school.
Derbyshire County Council has funded the project and it is expected that the new block will be completed in spring 2022. The project team includes DLA for Architecture, Curtins as civil and structural engineer, and Couch Perry Wilkes for M&E services.
Henry Brothers has also done external works on the site, including developing sports pitches while building the main complex at Glossopdale School. The company is also building the new £13.2m Alfreton Park Community Special School, elsewhere in Derbyshire.
